I don’t like Discord, but it solves an issue for people that no one has solved as good as Discord has.

Discord is just a great all in one solution for everything a gamer would want and then just for communities in general. I don’t think Discord is gonna go anywhere until someone actually matches them in features and does it good.

Edit: and they have to make it where you can do all of those things without having to self host or pay for hosting.

I truly doubt that they’ve never used it. I don’t know why anyone would believe any statements by organizations that are literally built to spy on us. Sadly some people do trust them mindlessly though.

I don’t think I’ve ever really did any dedicated reading since the Eragon series when I was still in school.

Just installed it, I like how it’s so snappy and lightweight

Ah, I don’t know much about their email but I know some basics.

If you don’t use your account it gets removed of course, you only get 1gb of space which is about equal to Protonmail Free. Neither of them includes IP address in headers.

It looks like in a direct comparison from what I can see not being a user, you get a bit more with Riseup than Protonmail’s free plan. But only by a little bit. You get free email filters and aren’t limited on them afaik. It’s also entirely nonprofit compared to Protonmail which is for profit if that matters to you. Sorry that I can’t give more info, I’ve never met someone who has a Riseup account or at least one that’s told me about it.

I’m not sure if they allow you to keep an account if you don’t use it for social change purposes.

Riseup provides online communication tools for people and groups working on liberatory social change. We are a project to create democratic alternatives and practice self-determination by controlling our own secure means of communications.

My old post deleted. struggling with the Lemmur app.

They’re good for hiding IP from websites and privacy from them, but they will absolutely turn you over on government order.

They don’t log IP addresses but they can be patriot acted into watching their network temporarily. But they have a canary so you can see when.

I use them for basic privacy, but they’re not the one to use if you need advanced privacy. They also don’t allow torrenting so keep that in mind.

Imo they’re one of the few good free VPNs but they sacrifice a lot of servers, speed, and US jurisdiction to do so. They rely entirely on donations.

Edit: They also have a mail service and accounts, but you can only join if you get invites from two different Riseup members, and they’re not allowed to give them to strangers.

tldr: Good for basic privacy, doesn’t sell info. Lacks features, servers, and doesn’t allow torrenting.

I still don’t know what wordle is but I know this is probably the fall of wordle.

I love having no karma system, and that the admins are actually real life humans with a soul instead of a soulless being only meant for giving out PR statements.

I like that the admins actually use the website that they admin, so they can also see issues on the user perspective. Plus it’s nice to just know a bit about them.

I like that it’s currently a bit small, so I can see some of the same users over and over again. It’s not random user number 4 million, it’s “hey, that’s thann, I’ve seen them around on a lot of posts”. etc

Any time I look at my old posts.

In all seriousness, for me it has to be when I saw that the Governor of Missouri is trying to get that journalist arrested that pressed F12 on a government site and saw that it revealed 100’s of thousands of workers Social Security numbers and he reported it to the website. The Missouri Governor is accusing him of hacking on the basis that he had to do “multiple steps” to get to the information.

Yeah. F12, click, click, social security numbers!

I am still seething.

Edit: Article (vice)

Edit 2: This is still an active legal situation for anyone wondering or wanting to offer support.

They’re not really that far off to be fair

Respect for discussing it, regardless of the outcome. Even if you end up going with allowing the mods to have free reign, I’m glad that it’s going to be discussed instead of turning a blind eye like Reddit does.

I’ve only ever seen posts from them that are mostly power abuse. They act like they’re better than anyone else and bans anyone who disagrees. They very much have an inferiority complex.

Edit: I came to lemmy to avoid people high on power, not have the cesspool of Reddit come to take over here as well.

If your browser blocks ads, but websites don’t see that it is, then that’s actually a good thing. As long as these features are actually working, then this is beneficial to keeping your fingerprint from becoming unique. It’s hard to have a non-unique fingerprint without the Tor browser.

In all of my browser usage, uBlock has never shown up as “Adblock enabled” on a fingerprint test for me. Maybe it takes steps to prevent being detected?

Yeah, this is incredibly infuriating. It’s small things like this that are pushing me to just get rid of my old reddit account.

I keep it around just to have it incase I want to talk a bit, but any time you’re not using the reddit mobile app they make it such an infuriating experience for absolutely no reason.

Imagine equating using software that doesn’t have much customizability compared to the alternative to moving to North Korea. Some people get way too into this stuff, at the end of the day it’s just what you’re using on a computer and doesn’t matter.

I absolutely love KDE Plasma, but I’ve recently moved to Gnome after jumping around a bit and trying both.

On desktop too, but I started using workspaces and that changed my gnome experience entirely. I love the customizability of KDE but the limited nature of Gnome makes me stop tinkering. I have ADHD so I get into the tinkering and just endlessly do it and never get anything done at all.

IMO Karma is a feature that just encouraged karma farming and selling accounts. As of now on Lemmy, there is no such incentive so if someone is going to troll it’s of their own accord. Every social media has this whether karma is there or not. All Karma does is alienate new users who would like to participate in the community they want, but they would just leave because they have to win enough internet points to talk about what they want.

I wouldn’t mind having to fill some security steps to make an account, but there’s no true way to stop people from being trolls.

I do see Karma helping to prevent someone from trolling straight away after getting banned, but ultimately they’re still going to troll if they’re that dedicated to it.

I use Ubuntu mostly, I just don’t like the snaps.

I’d say mint completely on the fact of that it’s a bigger name so it’s likely to stick around longer.

Aside from that, I think you can’t really go wrong with either. Both are great beginner OS. For direct comparison, honestly for with which one looks better visually to you since they’re both based on Ubuntu.

Getting analytics isn’t a honeypot or an invasion of privacy.

Getting analytics without consent or as opt out is a honeypot or an invasion of privacy.

As long as a company or software takes steps to protect my data, asks me first, and doesn’t try to trick me into enabling it, I am fine with it collecting privacy preserving analytics on my usage.

Analytics are very useful for development. 99% of your users will not post about their usage of your app. They will either use it, or delete it if they get annoyed or rant somewhere/say the app is trash. With analytics (that respect privacy and are opt in), you can know what features are used by your silent majority.

Just for anyone scrolling by, the article itself is clickbait. QT is not KDE and KDE uses the open source licensed variant of QT. They are also just giving the ability to easily put ads to applications in QT to give an easy way for developers to monetize their applications. I truly don’t think KDE would be putting ads in their applications as they know the backlash would likely be huge and they might lose some userbase which in the Linux world is very hard to come by.

My profile picture represents flandre scarlet as a cat girl, because I like flandre scarlet and cat girls so now I have both.

It has already likely been done once and documented. I disagree with this, but even if someone were to agree with it, it’s already on the internet to be watched if for scientific reasons (hopefully not sadistic) so that it doesn’t need to be done again.

The counter to this is that humans are important, so if an alien species were to come here, all the aliens should torture a human at least once because we are important to understand.

This is a very similar scenario, and everyone would probably agree that if said aliens were to torture a human, that it’s absolutely terrible. We are now the insects in this scenario.

It’s unfair for the same reason if you push a button that seemingly does nothing, but kills another person, it’s unfair to the other person regardless if you notice or not. A life has still ended to no fault of its own.

Not really, if I do manage to hurt a bug I usually put them out of their misery so they don’t suffer more than they have to. I don’t know the science behind if they suffer or not but if I were the bug I’d want a swift death.

We are taught that from school and in our families. People like my father think that America is number one, and that all other countries have no freedom and that everyone is trying to escape to the US. It’s just (attempted) to be passed down to the children.

We learn barely anything about other countries history in school except for the bad. A lot of our history taught, while accurate, leaves out a lot to understand other countries and commonly portrays us to be the “good guy”.

VScodium to VScode is as Chromium is to Chrome

If you install an easy one like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, or Manjaro, you don’t have to worry about space division. In their installers you can choose “Install alongside Windows” and you’ll be presented with a very user friendly sliding bar with Linux on one side, and Windows on the other and just drag it to wherever you feel comfortable. Just make sure you don’t move past how much free space you have available.

Distributions like Ubuntu (versions 20.04 and above) automatically install your drivers if you use an Nvidia graphics card. Just make sure to check the “Install third-party software for graphics and Wi-Fi hardware and additional media formats” box.

As for the benefits, you’ll get to know them more as you use Linux more. One reason is that drivers for hardware are included in the Linux Kernel, so a lot of devices are just plug and play that require an installer on Windows. There is more community support than Windows, as the system is not a black box, people who use it and offer support to other users on forums know more about how the system works and can provide much more direct help instead of guessing at the issue.

It’s generally more stable than Windows, even on the “unstable” releases of certain distros, as you get your applications from a repository from the developers of the distro and everything is tested to some degree to work together properly and not break the system.

I don’t use it because it’s bad for batteries, I constantly have to fight it to position it properly, and they charge much slower at the same price point.

They are, it’s called FLOC. Hopefully this actually increases the privacy of non-google based browsers as a side effect.

If you’re not allowed to walk away, I suggest running away.

But in all seriousness, this is something that needs to be discussed head on because this is certain to be detrimental to your mental health. Not knowing any of the circumstances, I would say this is very unfair to you and symptoms of a one sided relationship.

I recommend talking to a marriage/relationship counselor or an outside trustworthy friend and getting some advice. It’s hard to think rationally about your next decision when under a stressful situation like this so make sure that you aren’t going through this alone.

I wish you the best of luck in this OP.

This is honestly the most wholesome post

While it is a possibility, it’s much less likely to be a honeypot than Reddit itself is. Also an admin replied saying that it’s possible for someone to rewrite the UI to not use JavaScript, the JavaScript is just here for convenience in development. This wasn’t really made to be the safe haven for people who know multiple state secrets and have assassins after them, it’s just a federated link aggregator. The about page doesn’t even mention the word privacy or anonymity a single time.

I do respect the push for privacy and making sure though, I’d like it and every website to be easily accessible without JavaScript or tracking too. I don’t blame the devs for using JavaScript though, it makes things easier.

To commit to learning to code. I’ve kept staying at the beginner level even though I’m about to finish my Associate’s Degree. I keep juggling languages and not sticking with a single one so I’ve made it my new years resolution to learn Java before the year ends and be able to actually use it to make things.

If your phone is compromised, anything that you can see they can see as well. Absolutely nothing can protect against that because the only way would be to prevent even yourself from seeing it.

Potentially a really good sandbox and strict permissions could help, but if someone were to backdoor your phone chances are they can get around most software based solutions anyway.
